Prosperity 



ATTENDS THE 



Brethren Colonies 



ON THE 



NORTHERN PACIFIC 

. . . IN . . . 

:entral north Dakota 

Where crops have been good and land has trebled in value. 

?HE NEZPERCES COUNTRY IN NORTHERN IDAHO 

The banner wheat and stock-raising section of the Pacific Northwest. 

THE YAKIMA VALLEY 

Where the Brethren have a strong congregation and a churchhouse of their 
own at Sunnyside, the town in which immorality and vice can never gain a 
footing, where land sown to Alfalfa yields an income of over $50.00 per acre 
each year, and Fruit Orchards bring their owners a yearly revenue of from 
$50.00 to $250.00 per acre, according to the age of the trees. Eld. D. B. Eby 
calls it the GOSHEN of the Northwest. Kennewick, the Gateway of the 
Valley, is fast developing. Land there can be purchased at Lower Prices than 
any other Irrigated Land in Central Washington, but will advance rapidly. 
Berries ripen here earlier than in any other part. 

THE FERTILE VALLEYS OF WESTERN WASHINGTON 

Where Grain, Stock and Fruit Flourish and the Climate is tempered by the 
Breezes from the Pacific Ocean; where Lumbering, Mining and Fishing offer 
boundless opportunities for remunerative labor, and the profitable investment 
of capital. 



For particulars about Government Land, and Unoccupied Land owned by Pri- 
vate Parties or Companies, suitable for Single Farms or Colonies, and for maps and 
printed matter descriptive of Northern Pacific Railway Lands, and for information 
regarding Industrial and Business Openings along the line of the Northern Pacific 
Railway, write to

CATARRH 



Conquered by the E. J. Worst Combination Treatment 

Why Suffer Longer with an Offensive Disease when it is 
in your Power to make a Free Test of a Home Treatment? 



If you have it you 



Catarrh, in any stage of development, needs no description as to its offensiveness. 
know it and so do those who come in contact with you. 

Nor is it necessary to dwell upon the dangers arising from Catarrh— dangers as to complications 
leading finally to death. Evidences of these dangers are witnessed on every side. 

Having the disease, what are you going to do about it? Seek the best treatment, of course, and 

SEEK IT NOW! 

Common sense, as well as science, make it clear that a perfectly healthy body will not leak (unnatu- 
rally discharge) from the nose or throat. Such " leaks " are indicative of constitutional disorders. They 
are merely discharges from weak parts subjected to the attack of germs taken, with the air breathed, into 
the nose and throat. 

It is perfectly clear, therefore, that these weak spots in the nose and throat ought to be strengthened 
by constitutional treatment, for the general health; but at the same time the germs that cause Catarrh 
must be destroyed by direct attack in order to eradicate the disease. 

Such is the E. J. Worst treatment. His constitutional treatment improves the action of the liver and 
kidneys, thereby eliminating from the body uric acid and other poisons, purifies the blood and tones up 
the system generally. 

His Co-ro-na Medicator carries medicated air into the very home of catarrhal germs and destroys them. 

. SPECIAL, OFFER! 

To demonstrate how easily, quickly and completely the CO-RO-NA Medicator and constitutional 
Treatment will cure you, we will mail to any reader naming the Brethren Almanac, within the next 30 
days, a CO-RO-NA Medicator complete with constitutional medicine for a quick home cure. If it gives 
perfect satisfaction after five days' trial and you are pleased in every way, then send us $1.00 to pay for it. 
If not, return it at the expired time, which will cost you only three cents postage. In this way you can 
test this unequaled treatment absolutely free; then if you are not convinced that it will cure you, you 
still have your money. Can any offer be fairer? Agents wanted.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



A Permanent 
Cure for Piles 



We have treated Brethren from all 
over the United States during the past 26 
years of our successful practice in Kansas 
City, Mo., and in the Brethren Almanac 
have always carried an announcement of 
our proposition, which is to accept no 
money until the patient is satisfied a cure 
has been effected. 
The Brethren Pub- 
li s hing House 
would not continue 
to publish these 
announcements if 
they were not posi- 
tive our institution 
was a reliable one 
in every respect and 
that we absolutely 
accept no money 
till cured. Treat- 
ing the number of 
Brethren we do 
every year, the Almanac publishers 
would certainly receive complaints, if we 
did not carry out in every respect the 
promises made in our advertisement. We 
treat piles, fistula and diseases of the 
rectum, and accept no money till the pa- 
tient is cured. We tell upon examination 
what the cost will be for a cure and the 
length of time required, but our examina- 
tions are always free and the patient is not 
urged to remain if these conditions are not 
satisfactory. Write to-day for a 232-page 
illustrated treatise on diseases of the rec- 
tum, containing also hundreds of letters 




from prominent people throughout the 
country whom we have cured. We also 
send the ladies a 108-page treatise contain- 
ing letters from ladies only, and urge all 
those who may be afflicted to investigate 
fully the letters and information contained 
in these free books. 

Write to any of the following Brethren 
and they will tell you how they were 
treated:

THE PEOPLE IN AMERICA 

Arc proverbially in a hurry. They eat in a hurry, work in a hurry, sleep in a hurry, over-working 
and over-straining nature, and then wonder why it is that they don't feel well and strong. One of the 
results of the American way of " rushing " things is the impoverishing of the blood, which furnishes the 
sinews of life. If you value your health, stop a moment in the mad rush and think! Recoup your wasted 
energies through the use of DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZKR. Rev. Jas. R. Lane, Shirleysburg, 
Pa., writes: " I feel like a new man since using the BLOOD VITALIZER, although 76 years old."

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 




Residence of Eld. George Wolfe, near Liberty, Adams Co., III. 

THE HOME OF ELD. GEORGE WOLFE. 



The above from a photograph is an ex- 
cellent picture of the home of Eld. Geo. 
Wolfe, of Adams Co., Illinois. He settled 
here in 1831, having previously resided 
in Union county. Bro. Wolfe was born 
in Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, both 
of his parents being members, and his 
father an ordained elder. The family 
emigrated to Kentucky in an early day, 
and later on settled in Union county, as 
stated above. 

Bro. George Wolfe was the first elder 
among the Brethren ordained in Illinois. 
He was a most wonderful preacher, and 
congregations never grew tired of lis- 
tening to his addresses, though he fre- 
quently preached two hours. 

The rear part of the building, as 
shown in the picture, is where Eld. 
Wolfe lived when he first settled in 
Adams county. The two story part was 
erected by his son David sometime be- 
fore the war. It was in the room, just 
back of where the two men are stand- 



ing, that Bro. Wolfe died Nov. 16, 1865, 
in the eighty-sixth year of his age. The 
aged man shown in the picture is Bro. 
John Wolfe, in his ninety-third year, the 
only child of Eld. Wolfe now living. 
Bro. John Wolfe, while old and some- 
what feeble, is yet full of zeal for the 
cause of primitive Christianity. 

The old Wolfe residence is one of the 
landmarks of Adams county. Here 
lived a man who, in a measure, affected 
the whole Brotherhood. When his fa- 
ther's family left Pennsylvania they car- 
ried with them to the wilds of the then 
far West the single mode of feet-wash- 
ing. Here it was preserved for decades, 
causing no friction until many years 
later, when Brethren from the East, 
where the manner of feet-washing seems 
to have undergone a change, commenced 
settling among those far western Breth- 
ren. This brought the question to the 
notice of the Conference, and the result 
was a final victory for the single mode.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



In the course of his travels Elder 
Wolfe visited Mt. Morris in 1847, and 
preached in what was in that day known 
as the college chapel, having for his 
text: " For God hath not given us the 
spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, 
and of a sound mind." 2 Tim. 1:7. He 
dwelt mainly on the spirit of a sound 
mind, and not only interested the large 



audience, but made a most favorable 
impression. Nine years later he attend- 
ed the Annual Meeting near Lena, and 
went from there to Arnolds Grove, near 
Mt. Carroll, where he delivered a very 
able discourse on trine immersion, that 
to this day is remembered by some who 
heard him. So far as we know, this was 
his last visit to Northern Illinois. 



LEAVES FROM MEMORY'S BOOK. 



BY LINA M. STONER. 



Happy the young man or woman who 
stands upon life's threshold and with 
beaming eye beholds the future as a bright 
panorama in the distance, with its duties 
and cares transfigured by the magic 
wand of love and conscious power; but 
happier is he who can pause for a mo- 
ment upon the battlefield of life to re- 
view the scenes through which he has 
passed; who can, while memory holds 
the light, again inhale the fragrance of 
roses, from whose clinging branches 
time has removed every thorn; who can 
linger in green pastures and refresh his 
soul by still waters, and while the bat- 
tle is raging can look to heaven and 
sing: 

" Here I raise my Ebenezer, 
Hither by thy help I'm come." 

With the prayer that a review of some 
of the scenes of the past may benefit 
other travelers to the great beyond as 
they have given strength and comfort 
to the writer, these memories are writ- 
ten. 

I recall a home where love, like a 
halo of light, illuminates and beautifies 
the place; where laughing children romp 
and grow; where toil and care are be- 
guiled by kindly words and holy song; 
I kneel again at the family altar after 
the arduous duties of the day, and sit by 
the sixie of her whose womanly graces, 



whose piety and faithfulness reveal to 
me the picture of ideal motherhood, and 
her example has been an inspiration 
through the busy scenes of life. From 
that home have come strong men and 
noble women who are adorning their 
Christian profession. By the side of her 
faithful husband she has labored long 
and well, and the secret of her beautiful 
life is that, amidst its unending routine 
of daily duties, she has learned the les- 
son of loving service, by taking time to 
sit at the feet of Jesus; and may the ex- 
ample of this worthy Mary fall as a 
mantle upon those of God's handmaid- 
ens who know and love her. 

Another lovely home presents itself 
to memory, blessed with other strong 
men and noble women who have grown 
up under the tender care of Christian 
parents. I could tell of the neatness, 
the quietude and love that reigned there; 
but I hasten to an upper room where, 
morning after morning, it was my bless- 
ed privilege to be a silent listener to 
that which to me was sweeter than an 
angel's song. The room at the foot of 
the stairway was occupied by the moth- 
er, a saintly woman who walked and 
talked with God. There, in secret, she 
pleaded for strength and grace; there 
her pure soul basked in the sunlight of 
'divine love; and, as angels bore her pe- 
titions heavenward, I ccmld hear the ear-

THE SIGHT OF BLOOD 

Will move a man to action quicker than anything else. He will give the smallest cut or wound im- 
mediate attention, and sometimes set the whole family astir in doing so, and yet that same man will go 

for it. Why is this? Suffering 



for years with a lame back as a result of diseased kidneys, and do nothing for 



and anxiety is reduced to the minimum by taking the ailment early in hand with a course of treatment 
with DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER. Philip Koehler, of 5643 Wabash Ave., Chicago, 111., writes: 
"Dr. Peter Fahrney, Chicago, 111. 
used the BLOOD VITALIZER." 



Dear Sir: — I never had any faith in ready-prepared medicine until I 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



nest pleadings of her voice; all unknown 
to her, while drinking at the Living 
Fountain she was imparting to another 
life a sweetness and a courage so strong 
and abiding as to be a constant inspira- 
tion through all the years of after life. 
I need not tell of her noble deeds, of her 
loving ministry to the sick and dying. 
All these are written in heaven, and 
will be told on that day when the Lord 
will come to make up his jewels. 

I turn from these sainted women to 
a man of God, whose face my childish 
fancy associated with thoughts of Je- 
sus. No songs to me were sweeter, no 
sermons more soul-stirring than those 
which fell from fhe lips of our beloved 
brother, Jacob Trostle, who, though 
dead, yet speaketh. With what intense 
joy did the members of our happy home 
welcome this godly man into -our midst! 
With his great heart overflowing with 
love he sang, he prayed, he talked to us 
of Jesus, and had an angel visited our 
home he could not have left us with 
richer blessings, with more earnest long- 
ings for a holy life. I sit again in the 
house of God, a silent listener, as he 
ministers in holy things. What was 
there in his appeal to sinners that sent 
conviction to my soul? Why "did world- 
ly pleasures appear as unsatisfying 
husks as he portrayed the glories of a 
holy life? And as he sang and preached 
of judgment my aching heart yearned 
for forgiveness and liberty. When at 
last the burden became too great to 
bear alone, it was to Bro. Trostle I went 
for help in finding the " Lamb of God 
which taketh away the sins of the 
world," and when the morning of joy 
dawned, when the Sun of Righteousness 
arose with healing in his wings and I 
could say: 

" O for a thousand tongues to sing 
My dear Redeemer's praise!' 

Bro. Trostle was one of the many of 
God's dear children who bade me a 
hearty welcome into the church of 
Christ. Scenes changed and our fields 
of labor were far apart, but when the 
time for the annual reunion of our be- 
loved Brotherhood rolled around and it 



was my happy lot to swell the number 
in the assembly of the saints, I scanned 
the faces of the veterans of the cross to 
see if Bro. Trostle were among the 
number. We see his kindly face no 
more, but his influence lives. This brief 
account is but a small part of the ex- 
perience of one who knew and loved 
him. Eternity alone will tell of the 
many who were led to a higher, holier 
life by his godly counsel, his loving sym- 
pathy, his consecrated life. " And I 
heard a voice from heaven saying unto 
me, Write, Blessed are the dead which 
die in the Lord from henceforth: yea, 
saith the Spirit, that they may rest from 
their labors, and their works do follow 
them." Rev. 14: 13. 

And yet another scene from memory's 
page. A winding stream, like a silver 
thread, flows through verdant pastures 
and by towering hills; in its crystal wa- 
ters children play and dream their happy 
dreams of future days. A few years 
pass, those children leave their play and 
dreams and go into the active scenes of 
life; and now in memory one of them, 
the youngest, walks beside that stream 
and up the hill toward a house nestled 
among the trees. Her eyes feast upon 
the beauty of the scene, for in all this 
wide old world there's no place quite so 
beautiful, no place where she is known, 
is loved and is so free from care as 
here. She nears the place, her heart 
thrills with joy, for there at the window, 
her face all radiant with smiles, stands 
mother waiting to welcome her dear 
one home. That old farmhouse still 
stands and is yet beautiful, but mother's 
smiling face at the window is gone. 
One rainy, dismal night in the spring- 
time her loving spirit went to God; we 
laid her to rest in the quiet churchyard 
by father's side, and life suddenly grew 
strangely dark and dreary; but amidst 
the gloom we clasped more firmly the 
dear Savior's hand, and nearly all the 
children are coming up the hill again 
toward home; not to the house on the 
hillside, but to " that house not made 
with hands, eternal in the heavens:" 
May our dear mother's smiling face wel- 
come each loved child as, one by one, 
we cross the stream and enter through 
the gates into the city.

A Hopeful Disposition, 

Coupled with a good medicine, will put the av- 
erage ailment to flight. Much, however, depends 
on the medicine. DR. PETER'S BLOOD VI- 
TALIZER has established itself by a record of 
over a century's constant use, as a remedy of pos- 
itive merit.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



THE BRETHREN IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA. 



Next to San Fra -xisco, Los Angeles 
is becoming the most important, city in 
California. The city is well located on 




Brethren Church, Los Angeles, Calif 'ornt 



the south side of a mountain range, and 
is practically surrounded by a regular 
network of steam and electric lines, 
reaching out in every direction. This 
enables one to reach at almost any hour 
during the day any point desired with- 
in a radius of twenty miles, or even 
more. The soil in this part of' Cali- 
fornia is generally quite fertile, the cli- 
mate delightful and the possibilities of 
the country wonderful. 

Over twenty years ago the Brethren 
commenced settling in the vicinity of 
Los Angeles, and since then they have 
built up congregations in the city, at 
Covina, Glendora, Lordsburg, Colton, 
Inglewood and a few other points. As 
a rule the congregations are in good 
working condition and are steadily in- 
creasing in numbers and influence. 
They are well provided with houses of 
worship, some of which are models of 
neatness and convenience. On this page 
is a picture of the building in Los An- 



geles. It is located in the eastern part 
of the city, in a section where a number 
of members now reside. 

At no distant 
day the Brethren 
are destined to 
exert a good in- 
fluence on the 
Pacific coast. In 
mission work 
they are becom- 
ing quite active, 
having a desire 
to reach out and 
build up new con- 
gregations wher- 
ever openings 
may be found. 
Among them 
there is a strong 
and growing mis- 
sion spirit. This 
spirit is going to 
help them in many 
ways. It will not only unify them, but 
it will make them strong and give them 
a good standing wherever they may be 
known on the Pacific coast. 

At Lordsburg they have a college that 
may be made very helpful to them in 
building up their influence and in pre- 
paring future workers. The school is 
not large, but the building is am^le, and 
the time may come when hundreds of 
students will seek the opportunity of- 
fered here for mental culture. As we 
view it, the outlook for the Brethren in 
California is encouraging. 



One great cause of the bad and pasty 
complexion among girls of the present 
day is their habit of sleeping in ill- 
ventilated rooms. A room kept too hot 
or too cold is very bad for the health. 
A room should be- just warm enough to 
be comfortable, and no warmer; and it 
is better for it to be a little too cold 
than too hot.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



AMONG THE MOUNTAINS. 



BY JAMES M. NEFF. 



I was born and reared in the State of 
Indiana. I was twenty-nine years old 
before I ever saw a mountain. My par- 
ents were natives of Franklin county, 
Virginia, and as a child my vivid im- 
agination was often delighted by their 
romantic descriptions of the rocks and 
mountains over which they played and 
the 'possums and chestnut burrs which 
they encountered during their childhood 
years. I may have even inherited a love 
for the mountains; at least I had no lit- 
tle curiosity to see them. As to wheth- 
er my curiosity ought by this time to be 
satisfied, the reader can judge after 
reading this article. 

In recent years I have traveled thou- 
sands of miles among the mountains of 
Pennsylvania, Maryland, the Virginias, 
the Carolinas, Kentucky, Tennessee and 
Alabama. I have traveled by rail, 
horseback and afoot, and in buggies, 
wagons and mountain " brakes " drawn 
by horses, mules and oxen. I have as- 
cended and descended cliffs so steep and 
high and rugged that the best farm in 
Ohio would not have induced me to let 
go one bush until I got a good hold on 
another. I have seen the mountains, 
and while seeing them I have seen some 
other things. 

Within the last twelve months I have 
seen the old horse-power thresher at 
work, I have visited homes where the 
old-fashioned spinning wheel still sings 
and where deft fingers ply the shuttle 
and the old loom rattles out the home- 
spun slow but sure. I have been re- 
ceived with the heartiest welcome in 
homes where most of the indoor life 
was spent in one room and where we 
an4 " the old folks " retired in beds ar- 
ranged* in a row at one end of the room 
so close together that we could easily 
shake hands from bed to bed, while the 



young folks sat and " sparked " by the 
fireplace at the other end of the room. 
I have visited and lodged in many a 
home where a good-sized family lives in 
a one-room log house and sometimes 
where the clapboards serve as both roof 
and ceiling, eighteen of us, men, women 
and children, having slept one night in 
such a room, and that, too, without suf- 
fering for want of ventilation, though 
there were no windows and the doors 
were closed. In many such homes they 
depend for light upon the open doors in 
summer and the fire in the fireplace in 
winter, and upon the open cracks for 
ventilation, and so the modern extrava- 
gance in the way of windows is scarcely 
thought of. Many of these houses cost 
no money except for nails. The timber 
is free and the houses are built of logs 
and covered with home-made boards, 
poles being used for rafters and pun- 
cheons for floors, doors being made of 
clapboards nailed to rough-split cross- 
panels and hung upon wooden hinges 
and held by wooden latches. 

My father used to tell me of the log 
schoolhouses with greased paper win- 
dows and benches made of rough pun- 
cheons with holes bored and wooden 
pins put in for legs. I have seen all 
this myself now except the greased pa- 
per windows, having preached in such 
houses a number of times. 

On one of these preaching tours to 
the mountains I had a few miles to go 
by rail and thence by private convey- 
ance. I had a slight acquaintance with 
the ticket agent who inquired as to my 
destination, and when I mentioned a re- 
gion of wild, rough country where so- 
cial conditions were reported very bad, 
the agent asked if I had ever been there 
before. I told him I had not. Then he 
insisted that no stranger could go into

WE HAVE SCHOOLS OF MEDICINE 

That are diametrically opposed to each other in medical theories, but they all agree on one thing, and 
that is that the blood is the life, and that nine-tenths of human ailments are caused by impurities in the 
vital fluid. Herein lies the phenomenal success of DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER. It eradicates 
the disease germs from the body and creates new, rich, red blood. Magdalena Backs, Sugar Loaf, Colo., 
writes: " Dr. Peter Fahrney, Chicago, 111. Dear Sir: — I am glad and thankful to God to have at last 
found a true remedy in the BLOOD VITALIZER."

that country except at sf 



of his 
life. He declared it was V ." moon- 
shiners " and other outlaws" 4 who were 
likely to suspect any stranger as being 
an officer in search of them, and so 
shoot him without mercy. I replied that 
I would be accompanied by one or more 
brethren who had been there before, and 
so would proceed and risk the conse- 
quences. I went, and at one place was 
entertained by a lady whose husband 
and son had been killed in a quarrel, 
and at another house that had been 
shortly before the home of a man who 
was then in the penitentiary for fatally 
shooting his neighbor. A place in the 
road was pointed out where a man and 
wife had been shot down by thieves in 
ambush behind the mountain laurel, an- 
other place where an outlaw had fallen, 
shot by a pursuing posse, a gate where 
two men stood up and shot each other 
down, a pigpen near which a man had 
staggered, fallen and expired, having 
been fatally shot by his neighbor, a spur 
of the mountain whence a man had come 
down unnoticed into the road at night 
and shot his enemy who staggered into 
the fence corner and died, — all this and 
more. 

And in some of these communities re- 
ligious ideas prevail that would only be 
possible among the most ignorant and 
depraved. But this is but one side of 
the story. Among these mountains are 
many good, honest people, and for the 
most part they are attentive and re- 
spectful hearers of the truth. The most 
pleasant fields to work are these? 6 
no; especially not for those who have 
been used to the conveniences and lux- 
uries of more favored regions; but here 
is a great deal of work that ought to be 
done, and some excellent opportunities 
are offered for doing some real sacri- 
ficing for Jesus. 

How do these people live? Some by 
mining, some by working in timber, 
some by cultivating little patches of cove 
and mountain land. Others distill pen- 



nyroyal and birch bark, gather ginseng, 
swamp root and balm of Gilead buds. 
Then there are other more favored ones 
whose herds of cattle and sheep graze 
the mountains and who, though many 
miles from cities or railroads, live in 
beautiful and well-furnished homes and 
know how to bid you welcome and en- 
tertain you royally. And all of them 
whom the grace of God possesses, wheth- 
er rich or poor, are a bighearted, hos- 
pitable and happy people. 



THE ANNUAL MEETING FOR 1904. 



The Annual Meeting of 1904 for the 
Brethren church is to be held in Car- 
thage, Mo., commencing on Tuesday 
morning, May 24. The Standing Com- 
mittee meets on Thursday morning, May 
19, at 8 A. M., for the purpose of or- 
ganizing. By ballot they will elect a 
Moderator, Reading Clerk and Writing 
Clerk. If present, the retiring officers, 
brethren S. F. Sanger, I. B. Trout and 
A. C. Wieand, will preside until the or- 
ganization is effected. Each State dis- 
trict is entitled to one representative on 
the Standing Committee. Districts hav- 
ing 3>500 or more members may send 
two delegates. In the open conference 
each congregation may be represented 
by one delegate. Congregations having 
over two hundred members can send two 
delegates. These delegates, along with 
the Standing Committee, constitute the 
voting power in the Annual Meeting, 
and it requires a two-thirds vote to car- 
ry a question. As near as possible, ev- 
ery congregation should have an ear- 
nest, faithful and wide-awake delegate 
at the approaching conference. As usu- 
al, the annual Sunday-school meeting 
will be held in the conference tabernacle 
on Monday forenoon, May 23. The 
general missionary meeting will be held 
in the afternoon of the same day. All 
the announcements regarding this meet- 
ing, along with the railroad arrange- 
ments, will appear in the Gospel Mes- 
senger in due time.

For Almost Six Score Years, 

DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER has been 
in popular use and the test of time has proved it 
to be the best remedy yet discovered for blood and 
constitutional disorders. Made of roots and herbs, 
no minerals. 



The Sky Never Seems so Blue, 

Nor the song of the birds so sweet, as when we 
first get up from a bed of sickness. The use of 
DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER, if sick and 
discouraged, will enable you to enjoy the grandeur 
of God's beautiful world.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



THE STATE CHURCH IN SWEDEN. 



BY A. W. VANIMAN. 



The state church has jurisdiction over 
a citizen from the time he is born until 
he is carried to his last resting place. 
He is born in it, lives in it and dies in it. 
No matter how he lives, there is no 
church discipline, no expulsion. The 
minister may live the most immoral, the 
most ungodly sort of a life, and yet re- 
tain his place and position. The whole 
land, city and country, is divided into 
church districts or parishes, each one 
having a churchhouse and a minister. 
If the congregation is large the minister 
may have a number of assistants, for 
there is a great deal of labor connected 
with the minister's position. 

It is absolutely required that every 
child born shall be reported to the min- 
ister or priest, as he is called. Here a 
record is made of the name of child, 
date of birth and names of parents. 
The next in order is to baptize it. If 
the parents do not believe in infant bap- 
tism they may refuse to have the child 
baptized. This, however, is not pleas- 
ing to the priest. One of our members 
some years ago refused to have his first 
child baptized, and the priest refused to 
enter it in his books, and not until he 
reported the second child, two years 
later, did he get the first recorded. Ac- 
cording to present ruling a person who 
has not been baptized by the state 
church cannot secure any government 
position, such as priest or teacher, nei- 
ther in the government railroad, postal 
or telegraph service. The opposition to 
this ruling is growing gradually and in 
time it will probably be changed. 

The teaching of the state church is 
that baptism makes the infant " a child 
of God." It teaches that except a per- 
son is born of water and of the Spirit 
he cannot enter the kingdom of God, 
and this infant baptism is therefore es- 



sential to the child's salvation. So im- 
portant is it that in case a newborn babe 
is likely not to survive, it is considered 
the midwife's duty to baptize it. Bap- 
tism is performed by threefold sprink- 
ling. 

All children are required to attend 
school until about twelve or fourteen 
years of age. In the schools the Lu- 
theran catechism is taught. So much 
liberty is now granted, however, that at 
the parents' request children may be ex- 
cused from this exercise. 

At the age of about fourteen the child 
is required to " read for the priest " as 
they express it. This consists in going to 
the priest once or twice a week for sev- 
eral months to receive religious instruc- 
tion preparatory to confirmation, which 
usually takes place about Easter. 

The ceremony of confirmation con- 
sists in taking upon themselves a sol- 
emn vow to forsake the world, the devil 
and sin. When this is done the priest 
declares them worthy to partake of the 
holy communion, which follows this. 
While the children take this vow the 
facts are that with a large per cent of 
them it has more the aspect of a gradu- 
ation day at school than a religious serv- 
ice. 

According to customs each child must 
have a complete new outfit of clothing, 
possibly for the first and last time. The 
girl gets a long dress and new white 
hat as a rule. It is customary for par- 
ents and friends to give presents to the 
one confirmed. Instead of it being re- 
ally a consecration service, to a large 
proportion of the children it means, I 
am now old enough to be my own judge 
in matters moral and religious. The 
godparents have no further control (if 
they ever had). The boy considers him- 
self big enough to drink and carouse

and go out into sin generally. They are 
now too old to go to Sunday school. 
Just at an age when they need the care, 
teaching and influence of the Sunday 
school they leave it entirely. This prac- 
tically debars direct results from the 
Sunday school for the church. 

As it is the minister's business to bap- 
tize and confirm the child, so is it his 
duty to perform the marriage ceremony; 
but, unless the person has been con- 
firmed, a priest will not perform this cer- 
emony. In such cases they must resort 
to the civil authorities. This the most 
of them do not wish to do, and some 
boys and girls on this account will be 
confirmed that otherwise would not do 
so, and parents who are opposed to con- 
firmation sometimes have trouble with 
their children at this point, and parents 
are strongly tempted to allow the chil- 
dren to be confirmed because of the fear 
that the children may otherwise suffer 
inconvenience in the future. Friends 
and neighbors tell them they can never 
get married, they can never get any good 
position. Although it is much more talk 
than reality, it makes its impression. 
Before persons can be married, 'it must 
be publicly announced three different 
Sundays in the church. No secret mar- 
riages here. Divorces are rather rare, 
and yet the number of children born out 
of wedlock is really appalling. 

When one moves from one church 
district to another he is expected to take 
what is called his " prest betyg," that 
is, a copy of the record showing date of 
birth, etc. If he is not baptized and 
confirmed, the certificate shows this. If 
he has been imprisoned, it is written on 
the certificate. This betyg is usually re- 
quired when one desires to secure em- 
ployment, especially a steady place. If 
he wants to go into business, before he 
can get permission to do so he must 
show his betyg. When he locates in 
another district he is expected to have 
this recorded. 



Each church district or parish pays a 
certain salary to the minister who is a 
government officer just as much as a 
postmaster. In some cases (and not a 
few) a man gets an appointment to a 
well-paying parish, but instead of at- 
tending to its duties himself he hires a 
curate or vicar to do this for a small 
salary, while he lives well and does 
nothing. When a young man desires to 
become a priest he must educate him- 
self for it, and when he secures the po- 
sition he is always sure of a place until 
he is superannuated, when he is retired 
on a pension. His personal character is 
of less importance than that he carries 
out the rules, and teaches the doctrines 
of the state church. 

The support comes from taxation, and 
all pay their share to the support of the 
state church, even if they are members 
of some other denomination. When a 
person dies he cannot be buried except 
the priest officiates. The ceremony is 
quite short; a prayer, then the priest 
with a small shovel casts earth or, rath- 
er, sand upon the coffin three times say- 
ing, " From the earth hast thou come." 
— "To earth shalt thou return." — ''Je- 
sus Christ thy Savior shall raise thee up 
at the last day." 

Malmo, Sweden. 



NOT DIRT ENOUGH. 



Among the many good stories told of 
the new Bishop of London is the follow- 
ing: "One day, in his beloved East End, 
he noticed a dirty urchin playing beside 
the gutter. ' Hallo, my little man,' said 
the Bishop, who is a great lover of chil- 
dren, ' what are you doing there?' 
' Making a kefeedral,' was the reply. ' A 
cathedral/ exclaimed His Lordship, ' but 
where's the Bishop?' Dr. Ingram's 
sense of humor, always keen, was quite 
overcome when the small boy answered, 
' Please, sir, I ain't got dirt enough to 
make a Bishop.' "

There Are Two Kinds of People 

In this world. Those who magnify and worry 
over their ailments until they are actually sick, and 
those who do not realize how serious their condi- 
tion really is until too late. Both can find health 
and comfort in DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITAL- 
IZED 



Why is it 

That so many ailments which have apparently 
baffled the skill of celebrated physicians yield to a 
treatment with a plain household remedy, like DR. 
PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER? Because it goes 
to the root of the disease — the impurity in the 
blood. 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



THE CHURCH AT STERLING, COLORADO. 



The first Brethren in Colorado located 
at and near Sterling thirty years ago. 
It was their hope and their expectation 
to have a church there soon. But time 
passed, and with each year came hin- 




Church at Sterling, Colorado. 

drances, until it looked as if there never 
would be a church building erected. 
Yet the hope of the early settlers has 
been fulfilled — there is a good church 
building and a prosperous congregation 
at Sterling. Some of the early settlers 
lived to see the day, and are glad; but 
some passed over into the beyond with- 
out seeing their hopes fulfilled. 

What has been done at Sterling re- 
cently is no more than could be done, 
should be done, at various other places 
in nearly every State in the Union. The 
people are ready to hear the Gospel, 
and we should see to carrying it to 
them. There is no really good reason 
why we have not more houses of wor- 
ship scattered over the land. Conse- 
cration and persistent, untiring effort 
will accomplish wonders; for those who 
work in this way never work alone. 
There is always One ready to aid every- 
where when such a spirit is shown. 
And with his aid there can be no 9uch 
thing as failure. 

In some places there is success, and 



in others failure when an effort is put 
forth; and perhaps the failures discour- 
age more than they should. It is keep- 
ing everlastingly at a thing that brings 
success. And to doubt ultimate suc- 
cess is to invite failure. 

— ■ — | The spirit of the work- 

I ers decides the question. 

-;•>,; One reason, perhaps the 

,*y- o.- v | most common one, why 

failure sometimes comes 
is because those most 
closely connected with 
a work look to the out 
side for help before 
learning just how much 
they can do of them 
selves. No one can tell 
what he can do until 
he tries; and when an 
earnest effort is made, 
surprising results fol- 
low. There always have 
been and always will be 
doubters more than 
enough. If they had 
been listened to there 
would not be many 
churches in the land to-day. 

It is men of faith who are needed, 
men who are willing to take hold when 
and where the Lord says, and hold on. 
So much of the taking hold is done with 
a view of letting go at the first real trial. 
It is sometimes said, when there is a 
hindrance of some kind to be gotten 
out of the way, that the hindrance is ev- 
idence that the Lord is not in favor of 
the work that has been undertaken. 
But that is very far from being true. 
There is good in hindrances, though we 
seldom can see it until we are past 
them — and then we are sometimes guil- 
ty of doubt because there are others. 

On this page we give a picture of the 
church which was dedicated at Sterling, 
Colo., early in November, 1903. The 
members wanted a church in which to 
worship, and they went to work to get 
one. The first thing to do was to see 
how much they could raise toward the 
building; and when they had done what 
they felt able to do, there was not much 
left to be done. g. m.

Over the Teacups. 

DR. PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER enjoys a 
form of advertising different from most remedies. 
It has become a subject of house-to-house talk. 
The women discuss it over their teacups and the 
men in the field and workshop. In this way news 
of the remedy has spread the world over. 



Don't Delay, 

If you are convinced that something is wrong, 
but take your ailment firmly in hand, by a course 
of treatment with a reliable remedy. There are 
many good medicines, but there is one that pos- 
sesses positive merit and that is DR. PETER'S 
BLOOD VITALIZER.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



SCHOOLS OF TRAINING FOR DOMESTIC SERVICE. 



BY ADALINE HOHF BEERY. 



It is the day of schools. Public 
schools, private schools, theological 
schools, technical schools, business 
schools, agricultural schools, schools 
for the rich, schools for the poor, and 
schools for every shade of inclination in 
the world's heterogeneous population. 
It is inexcusable nowadays for the chil- 
dren of the commonest laborer in the 
quarries not to have a fair public school 
education. 

The young person who is looking 
somewhat above manual labor as a 
means of earning a livelihood will be 
forever handicapped unless he settles 
himself upon a good, broad, college ed- 
ucation. It is pleasant to notice the in- 
creasing thirst for knowledge; to see 
the blooming generation flocking to the 
centers of learning; to see them come 
out again, with temples broadened, eyes 
more thoughtful, faces illumined with 
purposes new and more beneficent, and 
take their stand in the rank and file of 
the promoters of industrial happiness. 

Though in the midst of a scholastic 
atmosphere, we need yet another kind 
of school, and that is one for domestic 
training. Young persons of all grades 
of accomplishment would be eligible to 
enter, and yet I might say that one who 
has already a good book education will 
make the most capable graduate, and be 
able to fill a larger and more lucrative 
place among needy employers. 

It may not be a popular chord that I 
have struck, but there is music in it, if 
only I am able to draw it out. There 
needs to be a reconstruction of senti- 
ment in the minds of most young peo- 
ple in regard to " domestic service." 
They bristle up at first mention of it, 
and they " won't be a hired girl in other 
people's kitchens." Disgraceful? Some 
great mind has said, All honest work is 
honorable. Let us begin preaching 
right here in the kitchen. 

Of course there has been the vexing 
question of social position,— at the pi- 



ano it argues, "I'm up and you're down;" 
over the range it grumbles, " You're up 
and I'm down." But this can be oblit- 
erated. If the plumber or the carpenter 
comes into an aristocrat's house to do 
some repairing, neither he nor his 'em- 
ployer thinks of his inferiority. He is 
master of his business, and goes about 
his work with that distinct conscious- 
ness, and receives his wages with the 
spirit of man dealing with man, with 
simple courtesy, without cringing or 
obeisance. Why should not a woman 
be master of her business and command 
the same respect as any other mechanic? 

Many girls get their household train- 
ing in a haphazard way. They are not 
taught that there is any nobility in 
sweeping, or cooking, or laundering. 
They are left to consider it drudgery, 
undertaken with a pout and a shrug. 
But " It's got to be done." First of all, 
let us not consider our kitchens " kit- 
chens " any more. Call them " labora- 
tories." Think of a chemist, surrounded 
by retorts and apparatus of every de- 
scription, making wonderful compounds, 
a genius whom the world admires. Is 
the cook to be admired less for the 
dainty and nutritious dishes which satis- 
fy and revitalize the body, making man 
a fit subject for work? And let us not 
have any " hired girls." 

The school I contemplate will have a 
complete course of household econom- 
ics, with a diploma at the end. The 
student will learn the most wholesome 
combinations of food, how to prepare 
them most palatably, how to buy pro- 
visions, how to save, how to build and 
keep a fire, how to sweep car- 
pets, how to make a bed, what 
will remove dirt and stains, how 
to wait on the table, how to receive 
guests, a liberal exposition of good man- 
ners, and why a hundred things are

In the Mad Rush for Fame and Dis- 
tinction, 

Along so-called original lines, doctors frequently 
lose sight of the first principles, namely, that the 
blood is the life, and that it must be kept pure and 
its circulation vigorous. The latter is the principle 
on which the great success of DR. PETER'S 
BLOOD VITALIZER is based. 



There Are Times 

When the application of the surgeon's knife is 
necessary to save human life, but in nine cases out 
of ten nature will, if assisted by the proper rem- 
edy, bring about a cure in its own good way. DR. 
PETER'S BLOOD VITALIZER is the help that is 
needed.

liquid, if they pour slowly it will run 
down the side of the vessel, while if 
they pour quickly it will not? 

A young woman armed with a thor- 
ough education in domestic science is fit 
for great responsibilities as well as 
handsome wages. Who does not like to 
have great things entrusted to his care? 
And as soon as the employing class find 
that there are those who are entirely 
competent to take charge of their estab- 
lishments, the school will be drained 
continually, and these " household sci- 
entists " will receive due deference, I am 
sure. 

Compared with the girl in the factory, 
whose winter working hours begin and 
end with the dark, whose head often 
aches with the buzz and roar of ma- 
chinery, whose associates are often vul- 



gar, whose wages are scarcely sufficient 
to pay for common clothes and indif- 
ferent fare, it seems to me the girl in a 
home has a great advantage. She has a 
good table, good air and quiet, and the 
intense satisfaction of being a creator in 
her own little world. 

I wish we had a school that would 
turn out such girls, — willing, capable, 
conscientious. That they be honest is a 
matter of course. No sneaking person 
can get a situation these days. I believe 
the product of such a school would gu 
far toward solving the servant problem. 
Let law, theology, science, teaching, 
journalism, nursing, bookkeeping, 
housekeeping, each be a profession of 
equal dignity; the talent God has given 
us is the one we must put to service.

It has been suggested that this pic- 
ture is a most convincing proof of, mis- 
sion work by colonization. Dec. 10, 
1902, a large party of Brethren left 
Belleville, Kans., on the first colonist 
train ever run to California. The peo- 
ple took with them their household 
goods, stock and farming implements. 
The next May the erection of a church 



was commenced, and dedicated July 12, 
1903.. The building is neat and com- 
modious, and will seat about four hun- 
dred people. At this time the Sunday- 
school enrollment is near 200, while the 
church membership is not far from six- 
ty. The people who have located here 
seem to be prosperous and happy. They 
are in a sun-kissed land where nature 
is at her best.

An Efficient Remedy. 

Even the presence of a bottle of DR. PETER'S 
BLOOD VITALIZER in the sick room has been 
known to dissipate the " blues," because of an 
abiding faith in the efficacy of the remedy, based 
on previous experience. There is health and com- 
fort in every bottle of this old herb-remedy. 



Facts Are Stubborn Things, 

And cannot be disputed. Among family reme- 
dies, DR. PETER'S ELOOD VITALIZER has 
gained a well-deserved popularity. Thousands have 
used it and thousands have been restored to health 
and strength by its remarkable powers.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



CHRISTMAS. 



By D. Hays. 



The following reasons are given why 
the 25th of December was adopted as 
the day when Christ was born. Au- 
gustine (252-430) lived before the ar- 
chives of Rome were destroyed. He 
preached a number of sermons on the 
nativity of Christ, and he speaks posi- 
tively of the 25th day of December as 
being the day of our Lord's birth, but 
does not speak as though it had ever 
been called in question. 

In the year 386, December 25th, 
Chrysostom preached a sermon on the 
birthday of our Savior, " which day," he 
said, " was unknown until a few years 
since, when some persons coming from 
the West made it known, and publicly 
announced it." After quoting Luke 2: 
1-7 he says, " Whence it is manifest that 
he was born at the time of the first en- 
rollment, and it is lawful for any one 
who wishes to know accurately to 
search the ancient records publicly de- 
posited at Rome, and there learn the 
time of that enrollment. " But what is 
that to us it is said, who are not and 
never have been there? Listen, and be 
not unbelieving; for we have received 
this day from those who have accu- 
rately examined these things and are in- 
habitants of that city, for they who have 
tarried there, having celebrated it from 
the beginning and from ancient tradi- 
tion, have now themselves transmitted 
the knowledge of it to us." 

Rome was sacked by the Vandals, and 
the archives destroyed, A. D. 455. 
Chrysostom and Augustine, living before 
that time, had ample opportunity to 
know the time of the first enrollment 
from the archives at Rome. The im- 
portance of this record is thus alluded 
to by a certain writer: "Should one call 
in question the fact that such a person 
as Jesus Christ was ever born, the evi- 
dence that his birth was recorded in the 



enrollment to be found in the Roman 
archives would, we think, be regarded 
as a strong argument in refutation. 
The same evidence, however, bears wit- 
ness to the fact that the day of his birth 
was December 25." 



THE PREACHER'S BERRY PATCH. 



Last fall a minister talked to us about 
his large raspberry patch. It produced 
luscious berries in great abundance, but 
his family feared to use them. A few 
years ago his daughter came near dying 
from the effects of a free use of the ber- 
ries. Since then the patch has not been 
regarded with favor. We told him how 
to solve the problem, not alone for his 
raspberries, but his blackberries as well. 

It is well known that the seeds of 
these berries are not good for the stom- 
ach. In fact, people have been known 
to die from the effect of the seed. To 
avoid this danger and get all of the good 
out of the berries there is in them, it is 
only necessary to cook the berries, press 
out the juice and can it in the way fruit 
is usually put up to keep. A half bowl 
of this juice, with bread in it, makes a 
dish fit for a king. There is nothing 
more healthful. It enables one to get all 
the good out of the berries without get- 
ting any of the seed in the stomach. 

After telling the preacher how we 
made use of the blackberry, and also the 
raspberry, he viewed his berry patch in 
a new light. Next summer he will help 
his good wife to gather the berries, can 
the juice, and then they will have some- 
thing delicious. Grapes may be treated 
in the same manner and the juice 
canned. This juice also makes a nice 
dish as well as a fine drink. 



EVERY MINISTER. 



Every minister in the Brethren church 
should have in his library the books of- 
fered by the Gish Fund. See another 
page for a list of these books. Proba- 
bly no other denomination in America 
has such a fine arrangement for furnish- 
ing her ministers with good books.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



THE MOUNT LEBANON SHAKERS. 



On Mount Lebanon, Columbia Co., 
N. Y., is a collection of buildings con- 
stituting the home of a celebrated or- 
der of Shakers. They own and culti- 
vate many acres of productive land, with 
picturesque surroundings, the men and 
women sharing everything in common. 
Here the visitor will see well-construct- 
ed buildings nestled among the fruit and 
shade trees, near the fields of waving 
corn and wheat. 

In the homes, on the farms and in 
the barns all the best labor-saving con- 
trivances are employed, and, so far as 
neatness and order are concerned, ev- 
erything is kept well-nigh perfect. 
The kitchen itself is a model of neat- 
ness, 'convenience and beauty. The 
work is divided between the men and 
women, the latter doing that suited to 
her sex and capacity, while the men 
look after the rest. 

These people are not only very reli- 
gious, but they are industrious, edu- 
cated and refined. Some of the women 
are quite well educated and have 
brought out several books of special 
merit. They dress plainly and neatly. 
There is a marked contrast between 
their appearance and the appearance of 
a group of women wholly given over to 
fashion and pleasure. They appear not 
only saintly, but intelligent. It will do 
our readers good to take a long look at 
this picture, which is inserted here by 
special permission of the " Christian 
Herald." __^_____ 

CESAR STINGY. 



This story is told of a church where 
they were raising money for refurnish- 
ing the church. The colored sexton re- 
marked of a certain fairly well-to-do 
farmer having a reputation for close- 
fistedness that he was " as stingy as old 
Caesar." " Why do you think Caesar was 
stingy?" he was asked. "Well, you see, 
came the reply, " when the Pharisees 
gave our Lord a penny, Jesus asked 
them, 'Whose subscription is this?' 
and they said, ' Caesar's.' " — Epworth 
Herald. 



HEALTH HINTS. 



By J. S. Flory. 



Cheerfulness is conducive to good 
health. The wise man of the Bible 
says, " A merry heart doeth good like a 
medicine," and of good words he says, 
" Keep them in the midst of thine heart 
(mind); for they are life unto those that 
find them, and health to all their flesh " 
(body). See Prov. 17:22 and 4:22. 

The most learned scientists claim the 
state of the mind has much to do with 
health. They say that anger, hatred, 
envy, malice, ill-will, worry, lust, etc., 
disturb the normal condition of the 
physical organism, and those who in- 
dulge in them cannot, as a rule, enjoy 
good health. On the other hand, they 
teach that thoughts that bring tran- 
quillity to the soul and harmony to the 
temperament of the body cause life, en- 
ergy and health to reign supreme. * This 
same idea is in harmony with the teach- 
ings of the great Master and Book of 
all books. Discord means disease and 
death to the whole man, while harmony 
means health and happiness in this life 
and a continuance of the same in the 
life to come. 

What a world of meaning in the say- 
ing, " As a man thinketh in his heart, 
so is he." Prov. 23:7. Think good 
thoughts and healthy thoughts, and thou 
shalt live, but if evil thoughts and 
gloomy thoughts prevail, thou shalt suf- 
fer pain and possibly come to an un- 
timely death. 

Los Angeles, Cal. 



ANT STRENGTH. 



An English scientist recently weighed 
a small ant and a dead grasshopper 
which it was dragging to its nest. The 
weight of the grasshopper was found 
to be sixty times greater than that of 
the ant. The force exerted by the ant 
in dragging the grasshopper along the 
road was therefore proportionately equal 
to that of a man weighing 150 pounds 
pulling a load of four and one-half tons 
or a horse of 1,200 pounds a load of

THE MORAVIANS. 



BY GALEN B. ROYER. 



Because of its unprecedented success 
in missions, perhaps no body of be- 
lievers in Christ this side of the Refor- 
mation has awakened as general an in- 
terest among Christians- as the church 
commonly known as the Moravians. 

They speak of themselves as the 
Unitas Fratrum, or the Unity of the 
Brethren. They received the name Mo- 
ravian from the English Parliament of 
1749, whereby they received public rec- 
ognition as a Protestant body. 

Moravia in Europe was one of their 
main starting points, the other being in 
Bohemia. They are the offspring of 
that religious revival and earnest con- 
secration to the Word, the intensity of 
which drove John Huss to the stake. 
This,, of course, goes back to the fif- 
teenth century, at least two centuries 
before the recognition mentioned above. 
As a church they have endured hard- 
ships and pressed forward under won- 
derful difficulties. Only the tenets of 
their faith and their strong discipline 
could have brought them through all 
that they have endured. 

Note just this one point in their disci- 
pline alone: 

"In every detail of their lives, — in 
business, in pleasure, in Christian serv- 
ice, in civil duties, — they took the Ser- 
mon on the Mount as a lamp to their 
feet." They lived not for this world, as 
so many in Christendom do, but in reality 
looked upon the service of God as the 
one thing for which to live. Every- 
thing was made to subserve this one 
purpose. Their ministers and elders 
watched over their flocks with this one 
purpose in view, and every member, 
from least to greatest, felt it his bound- 
en duty and great privilege to help ev- 
ery other one to live nearer to Jesus 
than in times before. 



Under this deep, spiritual life they en- 
dured persecutions and hardness as 
good soldiers. Driven from one coun- 
try to another, they grieved not to give 
up their homes for the Gospel's sake. 
In the seventeenth century the shedding 
of blood was freely given. At one time 
twenty-seven of their leaders were exe- 
cuted. In the succeeding years Bohe- 
mia was a field of blood. Many were 
driven out. The few who remained had 
to meet in worship in secret, and in 
doing so took their lives in their own 
hands. But God preserved them 
through all this. The remnants who 
could come together in his name, meet- 
ing unknown to the world, gave them- 
selves the very appropriate name, " The 
Hidden Seed." 

About this time Count Zinzendorf 
(1722) gave permission that this body 
of persecuted believers should find a 
refuge and haven of rest on his large 
estate in Saxony. Christian David, a 
powerful preacher, led the first ten up- 
on this estate to a spot known as Htit- 
berg— Watch Hill. Time after time he 
went out into the persecuted districts 
and preached and led to Hiitberg those 
who were willing to forsake all they had 
for Jesus. When about two hundred 
had thus gathered they changed the 
name to " Herrnhut," — The Lord's 
Watch. 

If the Moravian church has a center 
around which she rallies to-day, this is 
the place. Here are schools, printing 
presses, the headquarters of all their 
general publications, and perhaps the 
headquarters of their missionary en- 
deavors. 

Count Zinzendorf so nobly stood by 
the persecuted church and did so much 
for them that his name is revered 
among them, and admired by all who 



32 



BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



are acquainted with church history and 
missionary endeavor. 

The little congregation of Herrnhut 
was barely ten years old, — few yet in 
numbers but rich in spirit, — when they 
sent out missionaries to the West India 
Islands. The following year, 1733, mis- 
sionaries started for Greenland. Those 
were days when there were no fast 
liners racing the ocean or steam cars 
compassing the land. With untold pri- 
vations and much trial these mission- 
aries first reached their fields. And 
then they encountered difficulties of the 
character of which the church to-day 
knows little. 

One feature was prominent in their 
missionary endeavor in that early day, 
and the principle is maintained even to 
the present. They had no missionary 
society then. The congregation itself 
was the society and undertook this 
work of sending out. In this way each 
member was made to feel the responsi- 
bility himself. One can see how well 
they have held to this plan, for in their 
synodical report of 1899 this declara- 
tion is made: "Since then (the starting 
-out of these first missionaries) our con- 
gregation has broadened out into the 
Brethren's Unity, and the work of mis- 
sions entrusted to her has extended 
over all the world. Yet still to-day the 
work remains and shall remain a work 
of j\o single part or of no set of per- 
sons within our church." 

Each country has its own "province," 
doing its own provincial work according 
to the needs and conditions of that ter- 
ritory, and yet all this is looked upon as 
a part of the whole. They emphasize 
that mission work is " purely spiritual " 
and must not be p'rosecuted by " car- 
nal " means or by " mixing in politics." 
On the other hand, they strongly en- 
courage " commercial undertakings in 
connection with " their missions, when 
the benefits accruing therefrom shall 
help along the mission work of the 
church. They urge the maintenance of 



schools and colleges on the field as well 
as among the home churches, and es- 
pecially do they seek to train their 
workers for the field to the greatest 
possible efficiency. 

That they have made remarkable 
progress in world-wide missions may be 
seen from this result given in their own 
report: 

"For every fifty-eight -communicants 
in the home churches a missionary in 
the foreign field, and for every member 
in the home churches they have more 
than two members in the congregations 
gathered from among the heathen." 
Their headquarters in the United States 
are at Bethlehem, Pa. 



THE LITTLE GIRL'S SERMON. 



By Philip Landis. 

I knew a little seven-year-old girl who 
lived in a little town in Pennsylvania. 
She went to the country to spend a 
week with her uncle on the farm, where 
she played with her little cousins, helped 
to bring the cows and sheep, and hunt 
the eggs, all of which she enjoyed very 
much. The children had a very fine 
time together, and when the week was 
over she returned home. 

Her father was a moral man in every 
sense of the term. When they sat down 
to eat the first meal after the little girl 
returned, her good mother commenced 
to pour out the coffee and her father 
commenced to dish out the good things 
on the table to the children. The little 
girl looked up into her father's face, and 
said, " Papa, why don't you talk to God 
before we eat, as uncle does?" That 
was a telling sermon for her father. It 
reached his heart, and he soon became a 
praying man. In his testimony he said 
that his little daughter's few words were 
a more powerful sermon to him than he 
had ever heard from the pulpit. He is 
still living and has never turned back. 
The little girl is also living, although it 
is almost thirty years since the incident 
occurred.

THE GOSPEL MESSENGER, 



A weekly religious journal, 16 large pages, is 
published in the interest of the Brethren church, 
and is the only church paper published by the au- 
thority of the Conference. Price, $1.50 per an- 
num. 

It most earnestly pleads for a return to the 
apostolic order of worship and practice. 

It holds that the Bible is a divinely-inspired book, 
and recognizes the New Testament as the only in- 
fallible rule of faith and practice for the people of 
God. 

It also holds to the doctrine of the Trinity; 
teaches future rewards and punishment, and em- 
phasizes the importance of a pure, holy and upright 
life before God and man. 

It maintains that only those who remain faithful 
until death have the promise of eternal life; 

That Faith, Repentance and Baptism are condi- 
tions of pardon, and hence for the remission of 
sins; 

That Trine Immersion or dipping the candidate 
three time face-forward is Christian Baptism; 

That Feet- Washing, as taught in John 13, is a 
divine command to be observed in the church; 

That the Lord's Supper is a meal, and, in con- 
nection with the Communion, should be taken in 
the evening, or after the close of the day; 

That the Salutation of the Holy Kiss, or Kiss of 
Charity, is binding upon the followers of Christ; 

That War and Retaliation are contrary to the 
spirit and self-denying principles of the religion of 
Jesus Christ; 

That a Nonconformity to the world in daily walk, 
dress, customs and conversation is essential to true 
holiness and Christian piety. 

It maintains that in public worship, or religious 
exercises, Christians should appear as directed in 1 
Cor. 11:4, 5. 

It also advocates the Scriptural duty of Anoint- 
ing the sick with oil in the name of the Lord. 

In short, it is a vindicator of all that Christ and 
the apostles have enjoined upon us, and aims, amiu 
the conflicting theories and discords of modern 
Christendom, to point out ground that all must 
concede to be infallibly safe. Send for sample 
copy. Address: Brethren Publishing House, 
Elgin, Illinois. 



MR. MOODY'S PRAYER. 



Mr. D. L. Moody told some hundreds of mes- 
senger boys who went to hear him in New York 
that he thought* he had said the little prayer, 
" Lord help me," a million times in his life. 
Surely there is no one who does not need to 
breathe that brief petition more than once in the 
course of the busy day. — Ram's Horn.

MINISTERIAL LIST. 



Corrected up to and Including Nov. 3, 1903. 



For the convenience of the Gish Fund Department we have found it necessary to arrange the Ministe 
rial List alphabetically instead of under States. 

Kept in our large fire-proof vaults is a systematically-arranged file, containing a card, 4x6 inches, for 
each minister in the Brotherhood. On each minister's card are his name and address. If he changes his 
address, the change is noted on his card. If he orders a book, as provided for by the Gish Fund, that is 
entered. When a minister dies, or is relieved of his office, his card is removed from the file. If a brother 
is elected to the ministry a new card, containing his name and address, is placed in the file. 

The following list is set up from these cards. Should any mistakes be discovered, write us so we can 
correct the card list. The corrections thus made will appear in the Almanac list for 1905.

BRETHREN FAMILY ALMANAC. 



A Word to Thoughtful People. 

For over forty-two years I have been before the public as a. manufacturer of 
family medicines. I have grown old in years, and gray of hair. During these 
years I have, necessarily, learned many things. There are, at the same time, some 
things which, possibly, it shall not be given man to know— the human system is 
so complex and the science of medicine, if we shall call it science, is so uncertain 
in many respects. There are, however, a few main principles which will forever 
stand and if we keep these faithfully in mind we cannot go far astray. 

In the first place, we must recognize that the blood is the life; furthermore, that 
this vital fluid must be kept pure and vigorous, if we are to enjoy good health. 
This is all-important. If our blood becomes weak or impure, our whole system 
will suffer. We will lose in vitality, in strength. Our old-time appetite disappears. 
What we eat causes distress. We become sick. The weakest spot in our anatomy 
becomes affected first. It may be the stomach, the heart, the liver, the kidneys, the 
lungs or other vital organs. At the same time, our lowered vitality makes it easy 
for us to contract any disease that may exist around us. We are in a sense in 
constant peril. 

An impure condition of the blood will show itself in a thousand different ways. 
We may have aches here and pains there — touches of rheumatism. Our skin may 
show outbreakings of impurities. All these symptoms require attention. Nature 
needs some assistance to throw off through the proper channel these poisonous 
matters — the cause of the trouble. 

It has always been and is to this day a source of wonder to the public that 
diseases which have baffled the so-called highest scientific skill have yielded to the 
quiet influence of some '"Win household remedy, and yet the secret of the whole 
business is that it struck at the root of the evil — the impurity in the blood. The 
following is a case in point. The letter reached me as have thousands of similar 
ones during years past. I have no acquaintanceship with the persons involved. I 
can but say, however, that I would have to be very indifferent at heart if such 
letters would not give me much satisfaction and encouragement in my work. 

ST. VINCENT'S ORPHAN HOME, FT. WAYNE, IND. 

September 14, 1902. 
Dr. Peter Fahrney, Chicago, III. 

Dear Doctor. — It is with the greatest pleasure that we report to you the complete cure of a child at 
this institution. It is the case of a little girl, eleven years old, who has had an eruption for five years 
and which eventually covered her entire body. At first it showed itself in red spots about the size of a 
five-cent piece, but finally they became the size of a dollar. The older they became, the more angry and 
fiery they looked. These spots would cover with scales. We had the services of many, and among them 
highly experienced physicians, but all in vain. Finally, we took refuge in your BLOOD VITALIZER, 
and oh, what a wonder! After the use of a few bottles the eruptions had entirely disappeared. We can 
but tender you our sincerest thanks and give your remedy its deserved praise. We wish that all the peo- 
ple might learn of the wonderful healing properties of your preparation. 

Wishing you God's blessing, we remain, Sincerely yours, 

Matron of St. Vincent's Orphan Home. 

Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer, the remedy referred to in the above letter, is a very 
old preparation, having been in use for over one hundred years, but I doubt if a 
more fortunate combination of herbs for a specific purpose has ever been discov- 
ered. I can say this conscientiously, with a full knowledge of more modern dis- 
coveries in materia medica. 

Papers and periodicals nowadays, however, teem with so many advertisements 
of so-called medicines and contain so many exaggerated claims that one can well 
feel somewhat diffident in making any statement at all. Fortunately, little need 
be ,said about Dr. Peter's Blood Vitalizer. It has become recognized by long- 
continued use as a "good medicine "—a reliable help in time of sickness.

MISSION BOARDS AND THEIR 
ORGANIZATION. 



In the following to make as complete a record 
as possible has been the end sought. After two at- 
tempts the results are as shown herewith. A 
number of Boards made no report whatever and 
hence the organization goes in as it appeared in 
last year's Almanac. It has been thought use- 
ful to indicate the time when each one's term 
expires. It is hoped that next year all Boards 
will make a complete report.

The Gospel Messenger 



A large religious weekly, of sixteen pages, published in the interest of the (German Baptist) Brethren 
church, being the accepted organ of that body. The paper, stands in defense of the whole Gospel, includ- 
ing all the ordinances set forth in the New Testament, along with all other Christian duties. The aim of 
the publishers is to furnish a religious paper, sound in doctrine, pure in tone, elevating in character, and 
peculiarly characteristic of the Brethren church. Regular correspondence from all mission points, includ- 
ing Denmark, Sweden, France, Switzerland, India and Canada. 

Price, $1.50 Per Annum. Only $1.75 for the Messenger One Year and 
a Copy of the "Eternal Verities." Sample Copy of the Messenger Free. 

The Inglenook 

THE INGLENOOK is an illustrated weekly magazine, printed at Elgin, Illinois. The field occupied 
by the INGLENOOK is unique. It's never dull, never gets into a routine, is not mechanical. Quite the 
contrary! It is up to date, bright, sparkling, and what is best of all, every line in it, from the first to the 
last, is clean without being dull. There's a combination for you! Its spread is all over the United States. 
All kinds of people read it, and everybody likes it, once they know it. There's something new in every 
issue, something you didn't know before. There are going to be some changes wrought in it to make it 
still better. That's what its friends say about it: " It grows better all the time." We don't know about 
that, but we do know it is continually improving. A magazine's like a bicycle rider! It's got to keep 
moving or over it goes. The INGLENOOK is on the move all the time. If it comes to your house then 
you know it, and if it so happens that you don't know the INGLENOOK, you ought to. We are putting 
this advertisement in here to catch your eye, and that is the eye of the man who doesn't know the IN- 
GLENOOK. You send us a postal card with your name on it and we will arrange for a call at your house 
every week in the year. Smart people will take advantage of this right away. Do you belong to the 
smart set? We can tell all about that when it comes to our mail. Good luck to you anyhow, but let us 
introduce you and the INGLENOOK to one another. Price, $1.00 per year. 

The Missionary Visitor 

Published Monthly by Authority of the Annual Meeting, Seeks Admission into 
Every Family in Every Congregation of the Brotherhood. 



It appeals»to everyone loving the cause of Christ, to use diligence to bring it to the greatest possible 
usefulness. 

It is spirit-filled, as many testify, because it advocates and urges what Jesus' whole life exemplifies, 
" Go ye into all the world." 

It makes giving to the Master's work " easy," as a certain aged deacon once declared in open council, 
because it tells the reader the need of the Held. This once known, the compassion of the heart is readily 
awakened. 

During 1903 India, China, Africa, Australia, South America and Japan were specially treated. Just 
as interesting numbers await the reader for 1904. 

Thirty-two pages and covea , well illustrated. Reading Circle, news from the field, mission receipts, — 
all these besides special articles. Subscription, 50 cents per year. Trial subscription three months, 10 
cents. Sample copy free. 

The subscription price is included in all contributions of one dollar or more to the treasury of the 
General Missionary and Tract Committee — not more than one copy to go into a home at this rate, nor 
more than one subscription sent on account of each donation. This rule holds good in contributions 
made through a collection by a congregation.

BRETHREN jAMILY ALMANAC. 




We beg to announce to the Brethren that never 
the history of the country has there been as good an < 
portunity for them to gain a competence and an in 
pendent home as at the present time. The facts sp< 
for themselves. Thousands of the Brethren are s 
cessful homebuilders in the Northwest, having local 
along the line of the Great Northern Railway in l 
States of North Dakota, Montana and Washington. 
As settlement progresses, it daily becomes ni( 
and more apparent to everyone who keeps apace with the times that 

The Way to Success 

and a home is to be found along the lines of the GREAT NORTHERN RAI 
WAY, in the States of North Dakota, Montana and Washington. 

NORTH DAKOTA— The Breadbasket of the World. 

Thousands of the Brethren and their families are to-day building and enjoyi 
happy and prosperous homes in North Dakota. Here can be found free Ian* 
cheap homes and conditions most favorable for the homeseeker. 

MONTANA— The Treasure State. 

The half has never been told of the agricultural possibilities of this great Sta 
Thousands of acres of tillable land, where irrigation is not necessary, still aw 
the developing hand of the homeseeker, particularly in Flathead, Cascade, r J 
ton and Valley counties, and in the famous Milk River Valley. Our Natioi 
Government has begun preliminary work for 

NATIONAL IRRIGATION 

In the country tributary to the GREAT NORTHERN RAILWAY, where 1 
Government will furnish water at cost. Here the land is not only free, but 
first-class for agriculture. Range for stock is abundant and free. 

WASHINGTON— The Evergreen State. 

Many thousands from the Central and Eastern States have gone into Wa 
ington the past season, and all rejoice over the splendid conditions. They ; 
amazed, delighted. 

I 

Write for illustrated descriptive Bulletins covering in detail the opportunii 

offered by the above States. 

For information in regard to cheap one-way and round-trip rates, which 
often in effect to enable the homeseeker to investigate or settle in these Stal
